2012 Speedvagen

Thought I would share my SV. I bought it from Vanilla bikes and picked it up from the shop in April of 2012. It originally was SRAM, but the Campy group went on it in 2014. Wheels are handbuilts; CK R45 hubs via CX rays to A23's.

I hope to get a nice set of carbon wheels for it when I can find some money and a good deal. I'd also like to repaint it at some point.

I've had the pleasure of riding some nice bikes and some nice steel bikes. This one is kinda special. It's got great manners and does everything very nicely. Including an all day comfy ride.

Looks great, I like the color and say dont change it.

How about some photos with a non matching background to show off the paint ?

I think you would be crazy to touch the paint. It looks so nice.
Bet you'll love it all over again after you get some stripper heels... carbon hoops.

Those are Classic 3T Rotundo's for bars. All my bikes have that same bar. Love it.

Very nice. So let's hear it- what are your other bikes (past or present) and how does this one compare?
